About Us

Deeplish Primary Academy is a larger than average school located Rochdale which is a town just north of Manchester in the foothills of the South Pennines. It serves a community that is predominantly Asian with Pakistani heritage, with a sizable number of students qualifying for the pupil premium in an area that is statistically recognised for high levels of deprivation.

Deeplish Primary first opened its doors in the early 1900s supporting the rapidly growing community. Unfortunately after many successful years’ service, the standards declined and the school was placed into special measures in October 2013. In December 2014 it reopened as Deeplish Primary Academy on the same site. The new school was opened with the support of Focus Trust, a multi academy trust based in the North of England which prides itself on being the heart of each community its school’s serve.
